A Modified Pentax 300mm Lens is on Japan's Kitsune Satellite

A Modified Pentax 300mm Lens is at the Heart of Japan's Kitsune Satellite | PetaPixel

"The Pentax lens was supposedly chosen for this project due to its “resolving performance” and the fact that its construction, which is all metal, is suitable for use in space. Additional reasons that have been provided for its selection are its compact size and affordability." ~PetaPixel
